Hollywood actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have been married for nearly 25 years, but as with any relationship, there have been bumps throughout their journey together. In June 2020, it was revealed that Pinkett Smith had an affair with singer August Alsina back in 2016, with Alsina claiming that this had happened with Will Smith’s permission. Over a year later, Smith has discussed how during that stage of their marriage, he and Pinkett Smith had agreed to not be monogamous.
But that’s probably not what’s actually going to happen here. When Mario has been given life previously, in the Super Mario Bros. movie from 1993, or in the live-action/animated television show from slightly earlier, Mario wasn’t strictly Italian. Rather, he was a New Yorker. Mario is traditionally a plumber from Brooklyn, and so whether he was played by Bob Hoskins or Captain Lou Albano, Mario just had a heavy New York accent, not an Italian one. I’m not saying Chris Pratt can do that accent justice, but it seems like it will be easier, and a lot less inherently silly, if that’s the goal. This is, of course, assuming that the goal isn’t to make the movie ridiculous.
With four X-Men movies under his belt, James McAvoy was certainly given more time to explore the character than most actors score with roles. He trails Patrick Stewart’s time as Professor X by three movies, as Stewart, along with the appearances mentioned earlier, also cameoed in The Wolverine and played a key role in Logan. While Dark Phoenix marked the end of the main X-Men film series, 2020’s The New Mutants was the final installment in the franchise as a whole in the Fox era, and now the plan is to reboot the mutant-led property for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

However, there is another way that George Costanza’s romantic fantasy with Marisa Tomei could play out in the MCU and one that would be a more fitting source of comic relief, too. One of Aunt May’s love interests after Ben Parker’s death was the father of Peter’s boss, J. Jonah Jameson, whose MCU portrayal (once again by J.K. Simmons) is a bit different from the comics. Therefore, there is no reason why we should not make J. Jonah Jameson, Sr. a brother or distant cousin to the staunchly anti-Spidey media personality instead, to make Jason Alexander a more appropriate casting choice.
Under the circumstances, with the movie telling a story about the multiverse, such things are certainly possible, and even if we don’t see these things happen in Spider-Man: No Way Home, it seems likely we might see them down the road in the MCU, as the multiverse storyline is expected to last for some time.
No one really knew what to expect from Ruben Fleischer’s Venom when it opened in theaters in 2018. Sony, by that stage, had loaned its prized possession Spider-Man out to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but was still attempting to tell stories in Spidey’s adjacent world, starting with the alien symbiote that takes over Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy). Critics weren’t kind to Venom, but fans seemed to wholeheartedly embrace the tone Hardy and Fleischer were going for in their solo film, which is about to spawn a larger sequel. Listen to Tom Hardy talk about the launch of Venom in our exclusive CinemaBlend interview above.
